Instructional Skills Workshop – February 2024
February 20, 2024 at 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Date: February 20 to 23, 2024
Time: 9 am to 4 pm
Intended Audience: Faculty members at UBC Okanagan including lecturers and sessionals, with priority given to participants enrolled in the Teaching Development Program (TDP).
The Instructional Skills Workshop (ISW) is an internationally certified program designed to increase teaching effectiveness and encourage reflection on teaching practice. More information is available on the ISW website.
The workshop is 24 hours long and is typically conducted over four to five days. The ISW approach is founded on several core activities which include: participant-led mini-lessons; participant-led feedback; and theme sessions. Confidentiality, peer support and facilitator guidance will all contribute to the success of the workshop.
Participants should expect to spend approximately two hours on preparatory work before the start of the workshop and one hour on assignments after each day.
Given the structure of the ISW, registration is limited, and enrolment is on a first-come-first-serve basis. Registrants will be advised three weeks prior to the workshop whether they are confirmed or on a waitlist.
